***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I saw a number of presentations at Sunbelt from groups affiliated with the Monterey Institute for Int'l Studies and Naval Post-Graduate School using reports from the International Crisis Group to build out networks of terrorist organizations.

http://www.crisisgroup.org/en/publication-type/reports.aspx

Valdis Kreb's 9/11 network is a classic. http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/computational_tools/datasets/sets/krebs_interaction/index.html

Kathleen Carley's CASOS group has a number of other terrorism-related datasets. http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/computational_tools/datasets/index.html

Marc Sageman is a former CIA analyst who has published some research in the area but whom I've found has not been forthcoming with sharing said data. http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=marc+sageman+terror+network

Cynthia & Michael Stohl's 2007 Comm Theory article "Networks of Terror: Theoretical Assumptions and Pragmatic Consequences" is absolutely essential reading for anyone doing research in this space. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1468-2885.2007.00289.x/full

I suggest that you start with an organizational chart for US Dept of Defense; and then incorporate their ties with NATO.

Subject: [SOCNET] Terrorist Org Networks

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** from one of my students:

************************
Dear SOCNET,
 
I am searching for network data on terrorist organizations that I can use for a course project.  
I am interested in exploring the ties between terrorist organizations at either a national or international level. 
I would also be interested in data that could be used to explore the network that exists within a single terrorist organization.  
If anyone has data that they would be willing to share, or recommendations for possible sources of data it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
